Condor Tool & Knife is an underrated knife company.

The company has roots that date back to 1787 and has been making quality knives workers and outdoorsmen have depended on for centuries.

Our Badass Knife of the Week is just the latest in the company’s long tradition of making reliable fixed blades.

The Condor Stratos is a superb all-around survival and bushcrafting knife with a simple design that won’t let you down.

The long 5-inch blade is made from 1075 carbon steel, an alloy that’s durable and easy to sharpen in the field. Featuring a blasted satin finish and flat grind, the clip point blade is useful in all types of outdoor situations.

Complementing the blade is a handle made from Walnut — a durable hardwood from South America. Finished to perfection, the handle offers an excellent grip that’s surprisingly comfortable.

Coming in at an overall length of 10.5 inches, the Condor Tool & Knife Stratos includes a handcrafted welted leather sheath for easy carry —whether you’re trekking through the jungles of South America or setting up your campsite in the woods.
